asteroza + scalability   58

Scality is changing the face of Cloud Software
Basically a SAN platform using an object oriented filesystem, to get over situations where you have huge numbers of files causing you to bump up against traditional filesystem metadata/inode limits even though you haven't maxed out raw storage. Which sounds suspiciously like a self balancing distributed cluster object oriented database system to me. Hell, NeXT used an actual database as their filesystem way back in the day, to decouple metadata from file storage, and allow blistering file search speeds.

Drawn to Scale
I'm a little curious as to what this really is. Judging by the blog, seems to build on Hadoop and Hbase. Maybe doing other storage tricks with iSCSI and ZFS maybe...
